BILL ORCUTT & OKKYUNG LEE
As a duo of two of experimental music's finest artists, Bill Orcutt & Okkyung Lee will play a special intimate show at Public Records. As one of experimental music's most influential guitarists, Bill Orcutt weaves looping melodic lines and angular attack into a dense, fissured landscape of American primitivism, outsider jazz, and a stripped-down re-envisioning of the possibilities of the guitar.
Orcutt originally appeared on the underground scene as a co-founder of Harry Pussy, whose explosive music combined ‘70s no wave, the ferocity of ‘80s hardcore, and the acrobatic intricacy of Cecil Taylor. Okkyung Lee is a cellist, composer, and improviser who moves freely between artistic disciplines and contingencies. A native of South Korea, Lee has taken a broad array of inspirations - including noise, improvisation, jazz, western classical, and the music of her homeland - and used them to forge a highly distinctive approach.
Over the last two decades, she has collaborated with artists such as Arca, David Behrman, Christian Marclay, John Zorn, Vijay Iyer, Jenny Hval and more.
